I was doing some web development work when all of a sudden a spyware program popped up saying one of my hdd's was corrupted and needed to be scanned. I simply shut off my computer by going to start menu -> power off.
Upon restart I didn't hesitate to start pressing F8 to get into safe-mode and run a malware scan, but it went straight to the black-screen, saying "WIndows is Loading Files..." and the progress bar at the bottom doesn't move at all and that's where im stuck.
I could not find anything on google or here, I can boot up with a linux distro and Hirens Boot CD. In hiren's I can still access my windows HDD and my files are all intact. I ran chkdsk through the MiniXP and it said it fixed a few index's, rebooted.. nothing.
So i used the windows 7 install disc to get into repair mode, but it kept crashing so I switched my DVD drive to a newer one and it booted into the install disk. the start-up repair says attempting to fix disk errors but then it crashes saying "Startup Repair Offline". I ran another chkdsk through the command prompt to no avail. I just tried running sfc /scannow and it says there are pending repairs please reboot and try again.
Also, when I get the repair options window, at the top it says Operating System: Unknown on (Unknown) Local Disc but I can open notepad thru cmd and open a file dialog and my windows hdd is there intact at D:
Does anyone have any idea where to begin with this? I'm running windows 7 32bit, 2gb of ram, 320gb HDD. I also used Hirens to check the HDD for bad sectors using HDAT2 i believe it was. All of my cables are connected fine, there is no visible damage to my motherboard or any capacitors. I ran MemTest86+ and passed every test, even removed one ram tried again then with the other.
